WINTER PARK, Fla. – Sailfish Senior Denisa Domiterova had a career night for Palm Beach Atlantic Wednesday night, knocking down eight three-pointers and pouring in 30 points overall, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to take down Rollins College on the road as PBA fell 82-73 in the Warden Arena.
Domiterova’s shooting night started in the first half when she knocked down four triples and another basket for 14 points. It continued in the second half when she converted on four more from long range and added another bucket and a pair of free throws.
The nine-point difference on the scoreboard at the final buzzer wasn’t truly indicative of how close the game was. Palm Beach Atlantic trailed by just four with under a minute to go in the game after a Mallory Motycka three, but Rollins converted on all eight of their free throw attempts down the stretch to put the game on ice.
Rollins was hot from the field all night, shooting an even 50% (16-for-32) in the first half on the way to a 45% (29-for-65) mark for the game. They connected on 33% (8-for-24) from beyond the arc and shot 76% (16-for-21) from the charity stripe. Palm Beach Atlantic shot the ball above their average as well, turning in a 36% (24-for-66) effort from the floor which included 44% (12-for-27) from downtown.
Even though the Sailfish forced the Tars into 23 turnovers while only committing 15 of their own, Rollins was able to pull away in the end thanks to a dominating rebound performance. RC outrebounded PBA 51-33 on the night, including 18 offensive boards.
Joining Domiterova in the scoring for PBA was junior Janelle Cannon, who netted 20 points for the ‘Fish. The two combined for over two-thirds of the scoring for Palm Beach Atlantic, while shooting a combined 50% (17-for-34) from the floor and 55% (10-for-18) from beyond the arc. Kimmi McIntosh finished the game with nine rebounds and seven assists.
Palm Beach Atlantic is back in action on Saturday afternoon when they welcome the Barry University Buccaneers to the Rubin Arena at 2 pm.
